eyes  I am getting back pain for almost 3 weeks, this is not unusal for me  but my pain usually went from the low back across the the right buttocks with a burning pain down the side of my right leg and numbing foot sensations. Now my pain is a sore tail bone with pain above it that radiates across both buttocks, goes into my hips and the front of both thighs. The pain can be sharp and shooting, constant or dull and can be in all 3 areas at the same time or be worse in one of the areas. I can be almost pain free in that area for a day or two but seems everything I do flares it back up for instance on Tues. I baked cookies and being on my feet for 2 1/2 straight flared the area up. Sometimes walking relieves the pain but sitting aggrevates other times walking causess more pain.
 
Any one else have this?

That is my constant area that flares. I'm not sure if it's all fibro or part that and part the arthritis in my SI (bottom). I just know that I typically get pain in my lower back, bottom and around into my thighs. I can't take NSAIDs so I use my heating pad, hot baths, and capsaicin. Stretching my back and thighs helps, too.
May not hurt to get some X-rays . That's how we found I have arthritis in my bottom. More information can't hurt. Good luck

I agree.  I was having more pain and it was excessive so I headed to a rheumatologist and found out I had something else that was adding to my pain and was given help for it.  Not everything is fibro.  Fibro isn't usually a progressive illness either.  So I, too, think you should get this checked out.

I am sure I have arthritis in my low back also, have cervical and thorastic arthritis. Just seems strange that I can have this pain and it is completely gone for the most part and than flares again.


I had some soreness and went for my bone density, as soon as the tech moved my feet inwards I could feel the spasms start, I was so tempted to tell her she needed to stop the test but did not. My results were Osteopinea, I am wondering if the spasms altered the tests results?

Thanks for the reponses, Linda

Palmy, I get relief from Lidocaine patches. I cut them up and place them around my back at the worst spots. It helps a lot.

If you get redness and hot areas on your thighs, you need to be checked to rule out blood clots. Also next time you go to the dr., ask him to check your pulse in both feet. Just to rule out any issues that could be occurring with blood flow to your legs.

I was just at cardio and my petal pulse was fine, no redness just pain although it was better yesterday and so far today, I guess I need to take things easier for a few days and give this a chance to heal.I tried Lidocane patch on my shoulder last year and got hives, I am oversensitive to meds in all forms so just use bio-freeze and my hot packs. I checked devin's book and she described my pain pattern exactly and when I press on my back where this trigger point is suppose to be, wow. she even talks about the sharp shooting pains in the front of the thighs.

Linda,

Sorry for your pain. It's good, though, that you can trace it to something in that really good book. I always feel better when I understand the reason why something hurts.
